A special addition to this show will be vintage Native American jewelry, pottery and also special paintings by RC Gorman.
David DeVary is well-loved and collected for his "Cowboys & Cowgirls with Attitude!" His use of bright yellow slickers, often black hats that shield the eyes and the cowboy's own natural body language helps create a striking, almost ethereal portraits.
Balance, connectivity, and spirituality are attributes that Ben Wright strives for in his life and artwork. He uses powerful imagery, juxtaposed with bold colors and neutrals, in combination with a sophisticated glazing technique. Sacred colors, numbers and shapes play an integral role in his work, including the Medicine Wheel, and the four directions.
Kevin McCarthy, a talented sculptor and painter will unveil new paintings. Kevin grew up in his father studio, famed western painter Frank McCarthy, and carries on his tradition in fine art.
Upton "Greyshoes" Ethelbah was born to a White Mountain Apache father and a Santa Clara Pueblo mother, and creates limited edition bronzes of his stone originals, which reflect the same sense of movement and power yet add an entirely new dimension through richly colored patinas.
Visiting artist Ali Mignonne, here to kick off the Finding Your Bliss exhibit at the renowned L'Auberge De Sedona Resort also will be attending the opening reception from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4.
